* This freaking eBay fiasco just won't end. GRRRR! I'm still breathing deeply through it but I feel that RAGE could be moments away and I don't want to react like that to smaller life irritants anymore, regardless of loss of hard-earned money/time. I have to go back down to the Post Office today and continue wrangling with them, although it's being claimed that my $30 shipping fee did not include insurance. *cries* It's all making my stomach hurt.

* I spent a bulk of the weekend finishing moving the craft room into the spare bedroom and preparing the emptied space for A Room Of My Own. I'm using temporary fixings to furnish it, but I have ideas of what I want in there permanently and it includes more bookcases.

* And I NEED more bookcases. Here's a sampling of some of the shelves in my loft. These are quick snaps on my phone for IG -

Has anyone else had LJ convert to html only???? What the hell is up with that?

* We've begun discussing Season One, Episode 2 of Penny Dreadful at verbis_diablo. I have so many thoughts but not enough time/energy to write them up. I've got to get my head back in the game.

Says he feels like we're already living in a library.

And that's a bad thing because...?

Hee! He's a serious minimalist. He also has only read ONE novel in his entire life.

You mean, "living in my fantasy"? ;)

I wish the lighting in my dining room (which is also my "library") was more conducive to "shelfie" photos -- there are wooden shutters which are pretty much permanently closed, because I have furniture up against them.

I have books organized by genre and then roughly by author (I'll group same-author books together, but they aren't alphabetical), and then each shelf compartment is organized by book height.

Less confusing than it sounds, I swear! (And "genre" is by my own definition -- as a few examples, I have "dark fantasy" and "urban fantasy" groups, a "police procedurals" group, "hard SF" and "fantastic SF" groups, along with a "trashy-but-fun" group, LOL! As well as space for the uncategorizable-but-amazing.)

These pics are from my old apartment, which had better lighting in the bookcase area -- linking to the big versions which allow the titles to be read, at least somewhat:

Also, I would be furious and bereft about the eBay/prints/USPS situation, and I'm so sorry you're having to deal with it :(

GREAT bookcases, A! It's intriguing to me how so many of us have the same taste in reading material!
